Vasomedical Announces Financial Results for Fourth Quarter and Full Year for 2014

The Company Reports Annual Revenue Growth of 6.3% and Annual Profit of $1.13 Million

WESTBURY, NY--(Marketwired - Mar 30, 2015) - Vasomedical, Inc. ("Vasomedical") (OTCQB: VASO) today reported its operating results for the three months and year ended December 31, 2014.

"With a 6.3% year-over-year growth in annual revenue in 2014, we are pleased to report Vasomedical's return to profitability as we recorded a net profit of $1.13 million for the year," stated Dr. Jun Ma, President and Chief Executive Officer of Vasomedical, Inc. "Our VasoHealthcare subsidiary continued to be the most significant contributor to our success in 2014 and again exceeded its annual performance target. Currently our cash balances are approximately $16 million and our total deferred revenue has grown 25.0% in 2014 to $22.5 million, providing additional financial stability to the Company."

"Looking forward to 2015, we remain committed to our growth and diversification strategy and expect continued profitability for the year. Our partnership with General Electric Healthcare ("GEHC") continues to be strong as evidenced in the extension of our exclusive sales representation agreement to December 31, 2018 and the start of our value added reseller business for the sales, implementation and ongoing support of the GEHC IT products in the second half of 2014. We expect significant growth in 2015 in this recently initiated healthcare IT business segment and in the wireless patient monitoring product and related intellectual properties we acquired in August 2014," concluded Dr. Ma.

Financial Results for Three Months Ended December 31, 2014

For the three months ended December 31, 2014, revenue increased 23% to $12.4 million from $10.1 million for the same period of 2013. This is attributable to a 30% increase in our commission revenue from our Sales Representation segment resulting from an increase in deliveries of GEHC equipment in the quarter and higher commission rates for the equipment delivered, offset by a decrease in Equipment segment revenues. 

Gross profit for the fourth quarter of 2014 increased 33% to $9.2 million, compared with a gross profit of $6.9 million for the fourth quarter of 2013. This increase is primarily a result of the higher revenue as noted above.

Selling, general and administrative (SG&A) expenses for the fourth quarter of 2014 increased 3% to $6.5 million compared to $6.3 million for the fourth quarter of 2013. The increase is primarily attributable to expenses incurred in the commencement of our new IT segment, offset by a decrease in expenses in our Equipment segment resulting from our cost reduction efforts. SG&A expenses were 52% of revenue in the fourth quarter 2014 compared to 62% of revenue for the same quarter of 2013.

Net income for the three months ended December 31, 2014 was $2.5 million, a 390% improvement compared with a net income of $.5 million for the three months ended December 31, 2013.

Financial Results for Year Ended December 31, 2014

For the year ended December 31, 2014, revenue increased $2.1 million, or 6%, to $35.0 million, compared with $32.9 million for the year 2013. Commission revenues in our Sales Representation segment increased by 14% to $30.2 million for the year 2014, as compared with $26.6 million for the prior year. The increase was due primarily to higher installations of underlying equipment by GEHC in 2014 as well as higher commission rates for the equipment installed in 2014. Equipment segment revenue for the year decreased by 25% to $4.7 million, principally due to a decrease in volume from EECP sales and a decrease in sales in our Biox subsidiary in China.

Gross profit for the year ended December 31, 2014 increased 12% to $25.2 million, compared with $22.5 million in 2013. This increase is due primarily to higher revenue in the Sales Representation segment as noted above.

Selling, general and administrative expenses for the year ended 2014 increased 1% to $23.3 million, compared with $23.1 million for the same period in 2013. The increase resulted primarily from costs incurred in our new IT segment which began operations in the third quarter 2014, offset by a decrease in expenses in our Equipment segment as a result of our cost reduction efforts beginning in the third quarter 2014 in this segment.

For the year ended December 31, 2014, the Company had net income of $1.1 million, or $0.01 per common share, compared with a net loss of $1.1 million, or $0.01 per common share, for the year ended December 31, 2013.

Net cash increased by $1.1 million to $9.1 million at December 31, 2014, compared with net cash of $8.0 million at December 31, 2013. As of March 27, 2015, the Company's net cash was approximately $16.0 million. Working capital increased to $9.2 million at December 31, 2014, compared to $6.7 million at December 31, 2013, an improvement of 37%.

Deferred revenue remains substantial, at approximately $22.5 million as of December 31, 2014, to be recognized in the future when the underlying equipment or services is delivered and accepted at the customer site. Our shareholders' equity increased to $7.8 million as of December 31, 2014, compared with $6.5 million as of December 31, 2013.
